The Jewish tribune. February 28, 1896

About

George W. Markens published the first issue of the Jewish Tribune on November 29, 1895 from his offices in the old Equitable Building (Trust Company of Georgia Building) in Atlanta, Georgia. Markens, also editor-in-chief, circulated the Tribune every Friday at a subscription rate of two dollars. In June 1896, he expanded his paper’s reach by establishing a second publishing office in Savannah, Georgia. Few issues of the Tribune remain, but according to other newspapers, Markens supported the Democratic Party and William Yates Atkinson’s bid for reelection. The Jewish Tribune appears to have ceased publication by 1897.
